Please note the change in meeting time. This is to allow our members to attend the 7:00 pm mass at I.C. for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception - a Holy Day of Obligation. Following the meeting, we will be having an informal Christmas party. Bring your favorite dish, snack or appetizer to share. We will try to keep the meeting short.
We supported two seminarians with donations of $500 each this past month. They are Samuel Schneider and Theodore Heino. If you would like to send them a Christmas card, Sam’s address is: 2260 Summit Ave St. Paul, MN 55105. Theo’s address is: 655 S. Lake Avenue Phillips, WI 54555.
